Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen continues to impress heading into Week 7's action. Over his last two games, "The Human Joystick" has 14 catches for 211 yards with 84 rushing yards and two total touchdowns. His playing time is on the rise and he currently is the best home-run threat on the Bears offense. He did lose a costly fumble in the team's loss against the Dolphins but still is a huge cog in the passing game. Cohen will go up against a Patriots defense in Week 7 that is allowing the 15th most fantasy points to opposing runners. New England has specifically been vulnerable to speedy, pass-catching running backs so expect plenty of touches for Cohen in a game that should feature plenty of offense. Cohen's value in fantasy currently has risen above teammate Jordan Howard and has solid FLEX appeal for Week 7.
Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen outpaced Jordan Howard on Sunday, finishing the game against Miami with five carries for 31 yards and a score in addition to an impressive seven receptions off of nine targets for 90 yards. Cohen has looked great over the past two weeks, racking up 211 yards through the air and a touchdown and though he will continue to get some touches on the ground, his bread and butter comes from his efficiency catching passes out of the backfield from rookie quarterback Mitch Trubisky. As Jordan Howard continues to struggle, expect Cohen to be more involved in the offense moving forward.
Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen rushed five times for 31 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 against the Miami Dolphins and he added seven receptions for 90 yards on nine targets.
Fantasy Spin: It wasn't all great, as he lost a fumble, but he now has a pair of touchdowns (one rushing, one receiving) over the past two games after being blanked in the scoring column across the first three games. He remains a solid low-end RB3 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 7 against the New England Patriots.
Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen will look to build off of his 174-yard performance in Week 4 against the Dolphins this Sunday. Cohen was all over the field against the Buccaneers as the offense looked explosive with the speedster in the backfield. He will go up against a Dolphins defense that has allowed five touchdowns to running backs over the past three games. Cohen is the type of pass-catching running back that has given the Dolphins problems all season, allowing 100-plus total yards to the Patriots James White and the Bengals Joe Mixon. Expect Cohen to see plenty of touches in Week 6 and will have FLEX appeal in fantasy.
Bears' RB Tarik Cohen scored an astounding 30.40 fantasy points in Sunday's Week 4 win against the Buccaneers. Cohen ran for 53 yards and caught seven passes for 121 yards with one touchdown.
Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen delivered 174 yards from scrimmage, including one receiving touchdown in the Bears 48-10 win over the Buccaneers. Cohen caught seven passes in the game and was electric all over the field. The offense was clicking with Cohen on the field and the Bears rode the hot hand as the speedy running back easily out-snapped Jordan Howard. The Bears were explosive and Cohen was a huge piece of the puzzle. Cohen will head into the bye week with plenty of fantasy appeal moving forward.
Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen caught seven passes for 121 yards and one touchdown against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 4. He also rushed for 53 yards on 13 carries during the game.
Fantasy Spin: Cohen had received some touches during the first three games but had a breakout performance against the Buccaneers. He will continue to be involved in the offense and can be at least a flex option most weeks.
Bears' RB Tarik Cohen had 7 receptions for 121 yards with one touchdown in Sunday's win against the Buccaneers.
Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen has 134 all-purpose yards through three games heading into the Bears Week 4 matchup against the Buccaneers. Cohen has the speed and elusiveness to take it to the house at any point but the Bears offense has struggled producing big plays through three games. Cohen and Co. will go up against a Buccaneers defense that has allowed the sixth most fantasy points to opposing running backs in the first month of the season. Tampa Bay is highly vulnerable in the passing game and four running backs have already scored nine or more fantasy points against them. Cohen will not see more carries out of the backfield than Jordan Howard but is a threat to score every time he touches the ball. Cohen will be a risky, touchdown-dependent fantasy option for Week 4.
Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen carried the ball five times for 53 yards and added three catches for 15 yards against the Cardinals. Cohen was again utilized early to throw the defense off balance and came up with some strong gains in the first half. The Bears offensive attack hasn't unleashed Cohen in space quite yet but he most certainly has an important role carved out in the offense. From a fantasy perspective, however, he lacks the touches to be an asset in starting lineups and is a touchdown-dependent play right now.
Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen will take on a Cardinals defense that, through two games, has already allowed five touchdowns and the most fantasy points to opposing running backs this season. Cohen has had an active role in the revamped Bears offense but the team has struggled to find Cohen in space early on. The diminutive speedster can break a game open at any moment but his fantasy floor can be disastrous for rosters. Cohen is a volatile fantasy option for Week 3 with a floor as low as his ceiling could be high.
Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen (ankle) was listed as questionable to return to the Week 2 game on Monday with an ankle injury late in the game, but head coach Matt Nagy said Cohen was dancing in the locker room after the game and is fine. Cohen was billed as a possible Tyreek Hill-like player in Nagy's offense this year, but so far that hasn't happened at all. Cohen has nine carries for 33 yards (3.7 yards per carry) and only four catches for 33 yards in two games. Jordan Howard remains the bell-cow back and Cohen shouldn't be in starting lineups.
Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen did not finish the Bears 24-17 win over the Seahawks because of an ankle injury. The versatile speedster caught only one pass for 17 yards and racked up only eight rushing yards. Cohen is a dynamic player with the ball in his hands but the Bears are still searching for ways to utilize him. Cohen's status should be monitored over the next week but the injury does not appear to be serious.
Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen (ankle) left the Week 2 game against the Seattle Seahawks on Monday, Sept. 17 due to an ankle injury. He ran four times for eight yards and he added a 17-yard catch before departing.
Fantasy Spin: The severity of Cohen's injury is not yet known. When healthy he is only worth a look as a RB5 in the very deepest of fantasy leagues at this point. The Bears travel to meet the Cardinals in Week 3.
Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen will try and bust loose for a big play against the Seahawks for the Week 2 matchup against the Seahawks on Monday night. Cohen was active in the first half of the Bears loss to the Green Bay in Week 1 but disappeared in the second half. Quarterback Mitch Trubisky missed a wide open Cohen on a wheel route in the fourth quarter that could have put the game away for good. This week, Cohen will face a Seahawks defense that is in flux but allowed the fewest receiving yards (465) to opposing running backs in 2017. Cohen can hit a home run every time he touches the ball but he will be a volatile option in fantasy for Week 2.
Chicago Bears Tarik Cohen finished with five carries for 25 yards and three catches for 16 yards in Week 1 against the Green Bay Packers.
Fantasy Spin: Colon appeared to be a lot busier than he actually was. Jordan Howard surprisingly saw more work in the passing game (five targets to Cohen's four) and seems to have earned at least half of the third-down snaps. With that said, Chicago was in control of the game until the very end, so there's no way of telling for sure if Cohen would have received more touches if things have played out differently. Cohen appears to be a RB3/flex play heading into Week 2 against the Seattle Seahawks.
Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen totaled 41 yards from scrimmage in the Bears 24-23 loss to the Packers. Cohen caught three passes for 16 yards and added 25 rushing yards on five carries. Cohen saw a ton of snaps and in several different formations. His patented elusiveness was on display at times but the Bears offense grew conservative in the second half. It is clear that Cohen will be an integral part of the offense moving forward but his ceiling as a fantasy asset will be volatile.
Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen has big-play potential heading into Week 1 against the Packers. The second-year playmaker is coming off a rookie season where he compiled 723 all-purpose yards with three touchdowns and one passing touchdown. Cohen can break the game open at any point in the passing game and head coach Matt Nagy certainly is scheming different ways to free up the 5'6" speedster. He will go up against a Packers defense that tied for the second most receiving touchdowns allowed to opposing running backs in 2017 and the Bears could look to exploit that. Cohen's value is in the RB3/4 range but could surprise fantasy owners with a big score Sunday night.
Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen 'not only has a skill set that will stimulate head coach Matt Nagy's creativity,' but he also 'has shown he has the mental capacity to handle a wide array of roles and responsibilities,' according to Dan Wiederer of The Chicago Tribune. 'He's a run threat and then he can catch the ball in space in broken formations. That's an advantage for the play callers and the play designers to be able to do some different things. We can move him around and try to get an advantage. ? He's dynamic. But then he's really smart. I talk about (not) making the same mistakes twice. So far, from what we've seen, he doesn't do that,' Nagy said.
Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen said he lined up at multiple positions during offseason workouts in head coach Matt Nagy's offensive scheme.
